With UK staycations set to be possible from 12th April, many people are looking for a break close to home.

Those who love animals – or have kids that love animals – might want to try this sweet holiday let, just 15 minutes away from Filey in North Yorkshire.

Humble Bee Farm combines a working farm with a campsite and glamping accommodation, and guests can stay in lodges and cabins, fully-furnished yurts, and bell tents with their own electricity, mini-fridge and outdoor gas stove.

The farm has plenty of opportunities for children to get involved in tasks such as egg collecting, wildlife walks and feeding or cuddling baby lambs who are only a couple of days old.

With ducks, pigs, cows and dogs all nearby, as well as a playground, sports field and interactive nature trails, Humble Bee Farm is ideal for kids who love animals and spending time in the great outdoors.

If you book your trip for springtime, you’ll see newborn lambs and calves roaming the fields, as this heralds the time of year when the animals have new babies.

Wildlife initiatives in the area provide plenty of activities for little ones, from checking out bug hotels to seeing if the chickens have laid their eggs.

Glamping facilities also cater to adults, with many of the modern wigwam lodges coming with their own private hot tubs for relaxing evenings when your children are tucked up in bed.

Additionally, some accommodation options have private bathrooms, kitchens and dining areas, and the whole site is geared up with wifi access.

Not only do many of the unique tents and glamping pods sleep groups of up to six, but dogs are also welcome which means every member of your family can enjoy this coastal camping experience.

With firepits and campfire materials available for guests, you can all snuggle up with hot chocolate and toast marshmallows as the stars come out before turning in for the night.

Humble Bee Farm is only a fifteen-minute drive away from the 5-mile long beach at Filey; a beautiful Yorkshire seaside town that is great for sunny days paddling, building sandcastles and enjoying fresh fish and chips or ice cream.

Other popular destinations such as Scarborough and Bridlington are also nearby, so you have plenty of options for where to spend your days during your stay.

Prices start from £150 for a family of six for two nights in spring 2021.
